King of Masks - Frances Bea
King of Masks

This was a really good movie. I got it because I was looking for good movies in Mandarin, but it turned out to be extremely good. I recommend it highly if you are interested in a tear-jerker and are willing to read sub-titles. It takes place in Sichuan Province, China in the 1930's. An aging street performer with a really good act wants an heir to teach his secrets and in desperation "adopts" a little boy by buying him on the black market. He suddenly has everything he ever wanted in life until he realizes he's been cheated by the merchant who sold him a girl.
